“I’ll miss the Euros.
To me that’s very sad news. So I could be standing here, feeling sorry for myself. I could fear for my career, as others may do. I could give up.
That is not me. I decide on my future.
There is a bigger picture to everything in life and only failing to see it, will cause me to fail. I am a hard worker and a fighter and if you are too, then you know that, to people like us, success can come in many forms. We trust ourselves when the going gets tough.
I have the greatest respect for those who overcome their personal challenges in life with a positive attitude.
I want to live up to that. So I remain calm and positive. I will continue to follow my path and I will do so with more conviction than ever.
I trust my friends and teammates to do well and do us proud at the next European Championships in France. I am now officially their most fervent supporter and I will be there to support them.
Written from my hospital bed,
Never giving up,
